Compact2025 and partners recently organized forums on accelerating progress to end hunger and malnutrition in Rwanda and breaking the cycle of food shortages and humanitarian responses in Malawi. These events followed up on roundtable discussions held in each country in 2016, to assess progress based on last year’s recommendations and develop plans of action in line with strategic plans in development or underway.
Additional highlights from this week’s Compact2025 News in Brief include:
- The Global Nutrition Report 2017 finds ‘significant burdens’ of malnutrition in all 140 countries studied.
- The latest ReSAKSS Annual Trends and Outlook Report examines how climate-smart agriculture can contribute to goals including ending hunger in Africa by 2025.
- Leveraging Agriculture for Nutrition in South Asia (LANSA) is hosting an online discussion on sustainable farming systems for food and nutrition security.
